Joshua Chapter 12 | Parsha:

1The following are the local kings whom the Israelites defeated and whose territories they took possession of:
East of the Jordan, from the Wadi Arnon to Mount Hermon, including the eastern half of the Arabah:
2King Sihon of the Amorites, who resided in Heshbon and ruled over part of Gilead—from Aroer on the bank of the Wadi Arnon and the wadi proper up to the Wadi Jabbok [and] the border of the Ammonites— 3and over the eastern Arabah up to the Sea of Chinnereth and, southward by way of Beth-jeshimoth at the foot of the slopes of Pisgah on the east, down to the Sea of the Arabah, that is, the Dead Sea. 4Also the territory of King Og of Bashan—one of the last of the Rephaim—who resided in Ashtaroth and in Edrei 5and ruled over Mount Hermon, Salcah, and all of Bashan up to the border of the Geshurites and the Maacathites, as also over part of Gilead [down to] the border of King Sihon of Heshbon. 6These were vanquished by Moses, the servant of the Lord, and the Israelites; and Moses, the servant of the Lord, assigned that territory as a possession to the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh.
